How to get help for alcohol and drug problems

It is best to avoid mistakes and problems down the road when deciding upon a course of action to find substance abuse treatment. Treatment should be there to resolve problems causing and caused by alcohol and drug misuse, not to care for the treatment provider’s needs. 

Unfortunately, there exist many unnecessarily expensive and burdensome programs and services which are primarily designed to create a profit for the provider. Some services confuse luxury accommodations, prestigious locations and charismatic personalities with quality, effective treatment. There are also unproven and ineffective services being sold as solutions for drug and alcohol problems. Finally, some solutions cause further problems (such as untenable debt) after treatment has been rendered.

Healthcare professionals and counselors you have learned to trust are some of the best resource people who can recommend treatment providers. People you may know who themselves or who have a loved one find their way through drug and alcohol abuse and addiction are also great resources. Since they have been there, they can help guide your search and support you through the process during and after treatment.

Ask the treatment provider if they are “accredited”? Accreditation agencies such as The Joint Commission conduct audits and reviews to determine that treatment services meet the standards of quality care. Ask the provider what evidence indicates that they are providing effective services. Go online to to find a government licensed or certified program near you.

Since the internet does not provide and objective review of quality and effectiveness, be careful using the internet. Providers who make large profits from their charges can afford advertisement and publicize their treatment services, even when their services may be very distant, inaccessible, demanding or expensive. If you do use the internet, always ask where the treatment program is located, whether it is accredited and contracted with your insurance company, and how much time away from home it requires.

Most people use their health insurance coverage to pay for much of their treatment. Your insurance policy can act as your guide selecting an ethical and economical treatment provider since insurance plans are highly regulated and oversee the financial affairs of treatment.

Many treatment providers who are not contracted with your insurance will state that they “take” your insurance plan. What they may leave out is that they are not contracted and will therefore receive a much lower percentage of the charges, leaving much of the cost for your to cover. Ask your insurance plan or the provider if the treatment program is “in-network” or “contracted” with your insurance company.

As a psychologist who has over 42 years of clinical experience in treating alcoholism and other drug addictions I have found Twin Town to be an outstanding referral option. When I send a client to them I can rest assured that they are going to be treated with respect and that they will be assigned a counselor who is committed to providing them with the best possible care. Twin Town’s CEO, David Lisonbee, is one of the most ethical and caring leaders I have ever met. He provides outstanding support for his clinical team which means that each and every patient who enters treatment will be given the treatment teams very best effort. Keep up the great work David.

It was great to see you last night at my mom’s graduation! I wanted to write and send you a quick thank you for all the work you did with my mom and our family. I am so proud of her and her recovery and she is really a different, better mom. I remember the day of her intervention when I felt so scared and unsure about what this phase of recovery was going to look like. It was truly life or death in my eyes. I must say that I look back and could not be more positive about where my mom is today and what the future holds for her (even with the initial bumps in the road). I believe we owe a lot of the success to Twin Town and the counselors that make up the program. I have a huge place in my heart for you ladies and the work that you do. Thank you so much!


My name is Rudy Y. and I am a patient of Twin Town, North Hollywood. I completed the treatment program last week (Oct 2nd, 2014) and wanted to express my most sincere thanks for all the good things this program has done for me. The counselors in the facility are very professional and caring to say the least. Mellissa was great at taking me in, when I was quite lost in life, and Cassie is a very intelligent and extremely caring professional. Cassie was my counselor, friend and confidant throughout the program. You have a great staff at Twin Town NOHO and I wanted to express the experience I had there. Thanks again for all that everyone does at Twin Town.
